Nevada Revised Statutes permits courts to order the sealing of criminal records if certain conditions are met and the court is satisfied that the subject has been rehabilitated. The word “sealing” is used to describe a procedure whereby a record is physically removed from a record system and its dissemination is substantially or altogether restricted. Sealing of records prohibits access to criminal record information except to employees of the Repository for record management purposes, a party or agency for an authorized search as provided for in Nevada Revised Statutes or a party authorized pursuant to a court order.
The Douglas County District Attorney has prepared a comprehensive handbook and forms to petition to seal your records. Please click here: http://dcnvda.org/userpages/RecordSealing.aspx
